    Congrats, &Rotom. You got 1 out of 3.

    I'm trying to imagine Ash saying, "Oshawott! I choose you!"

    Snivy sounds too much like "snivelly", which is what I feel about these names. >_>
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Best localised names yet I think.

    I seriously don't see the problems that some people have with them.

    Man! I'm too used to the Japanese names.
    Snivy, alright, that's good name, I have to admit it's pretty cool
    Oshawott, ummmmmm....... it's alright I guess, it's pretty creative
    Tepig, seriously?! o,0 That I don't really like, gonna have to get used to it

    btw I know off topic, but I like the Reshiram's and Zekrom's abilities names.

    You can always find me within the depths of IRC....

    Unova is actually a pretty cool name.
    Getting used to calling Isshu that...will take some getting used to.

    I'm not too surprised at the rename, because Isshu just sounds plain awkward in English no matter how you attempt to pronounce it.

    As for the starter names themselves...
    Snivy is cool, Tepig is meh, Oshawott is...wat.

    Wow, pretty shocking that they went and changed the region name to something so drastically different this time around. I wonder what the reason behind that one was? Maybe there's a pun in there I'm missing or something.
    UNited states OV America?

    Snivy = Snide + Ivy, I guess?
    I reckon that works. Sounds kinda snakey.

    Fuck, I have to admit, even I am upset with those names. Could they have tried anymore to make them so different? Not even the first sound is the same.

    For those who don't know me, I am one of the few majority anime fanatics who watched the Yugioh 5Ds dub and enjoys it. So I can tend for minor changes. But this is just outrageous. Nintendo, what grass were you on?

    Knowing TPCi, they're going to call it something even more inane.

    Wow, good catch. That might actually be it.

    Of course, there's also the "nova" = "new" pun in there.

    I like the names... Oshawott is fun to say... (SO was Mijimaru) Snivy I like it it kinda fits him... Tepig is cool but I wonder which of his Evo's will start with C (All FIre Starters have at leat one Pokemon with C as the first letter)

    Unova is drastic but I'll get used to it. Hey at least we got the names!

    Tsutarja got the best end of the naming stick. Snivy is a pretty good name. Tepig, it's my least favorite of the starter names, but I can somewhat see the pun in it. Oshawott is my second favorite, if only for how out there it is compared to Snivy and Tepig.

    As for Isshu to Unova, that's is one big change for the region's name.

    Un = United States
    nova = latin for "new" - New York

    That's how I interpreted it.

    I love Snivy. Its perfect.

    Tepid is a really lame pun but I'm ok with him.

    Oshawott? More like Oshawhat.

    Oshawott is an interesting choice. It seems to me to be a combination of three words: ocean, water, and otter. So I think the first O in Oshawott is probably pronounced the same way as in the word ocean.
